TOKYO & STAMFORD, Conn., February 22, 2016 – WWE® (NYSE: WWE) today announced the signing of international superstar Shinsuke Nakamura to its NXT® division.  Nakamura will officially report to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida in late March.

      Yep. Enough Indy whiners watch Raw these days, so why not bring all the Indy talent onto Raw so they can whine and give the company free promotion on the internet with hashtags like #CancelWWENetwork or writing a gazillion articles on various famous websites with huge human activity about how WWE is screwing the Indy guys over there?
